partition not showing correct amount

One of my partitions is not showing the size it is. When I use fdisk, it shows correctly as 22GB, but in Windows it shows 5.5GB. I thought it was my windows, so I dumped a ghost image onto it and this new Windows also says the wrong size. Anyone know what's wrong and how to fix it without formatting and re-partitioning?

first off, did this just start doing this or is it a new drive for you?

I have seen this once before. It was when I played with my bios settings for my hard drive. I had switched my translation methods around for my hard drive: LBA, Large, and normal. If you have messed with these settings, this is probably it. Hint: ensure your bios hard drive/EIDE settings are set to "auto".

Try checking all of your jumper settings and ensure they are correct.

Next I would try to delete all partitions on the drive and rebuild the partition table since you have an image. With an image, this will take no time.

Hope this helps!

Tek!
